Design Bridge Singapore celebrates the Year of the Fire Rooster

To celebrate Chinese New Year each year, our Singapore Studio has a rather lovely tradition of crafting a themed gift to be given to our clients, collaborators and suppliers. This year we’re celebrating the Year of the Fire Rooster so, armed with this as inspiration, our CNY Committee set to work designing this year’s gift…


As the Rooster signifies the coming of dawn (as well as the New Year), the committee decided upon a pair of drinks coasters, made for that all-important cup of morning sustenance to help get the day started well. But why two coasters? Well, good things come in pairs!


The round rooster coaster is laser-cut in oak and sits proudly on the top of its presentation box, whilst the square coaster below has been printed with a fiery feather graphic, which peak through the earthy wood to add vibrance to the whole effect.



Combined, the pair of coasters demonstrate how two elements can come together to deliver a beautiful and unexpected result – something that we think is symbolic of our working relationship with our clients and collaborators.


We’d like to wish all of our clients, suppliers, friends and collaborators all over the world a prosperous year ahead. Gong Xi Fa Cai!

And finally, a shout out to the CNY Committee: Aaron L, Alice N, Gary W, Lakshitha R and Michelle K (plus special thanks to Dea and JT, too).
